we had a fabulous long weekend. matthew and i snuck away for a night - we saw wicked and stayed in a cute old hotel downtown. we ran errands and got things done around the house. i worked on project life and some other scrap projects. the boys played and played and played outside. we went to a memorial day block party at a neighbor's house. and then sam was spinning around me and slipped and slammed his knee into the ground - and suddenly we were leaving the bigs w/ a neighbor and in the car headed for the children's er. again.
four stitches this time. and once again, he was a rockstar. stitching takes a lot longer than stapling, but he mostly kept his cool. some crying, but no fighting or squirming. brave, brave boy. they wrapped and padded the heck out of it in hopes of keeping it clean, dry & protected. on the upside? we can get the stitches + staples removed at the same ped visit. lucky us? to be honest, i'm focusing on the fact that he's a happy, healthy and active (though slightly banged up) little dude.

also lucky? little me. i grew up in an home where i had everything i needed, and most of what i wanted. i had choices. i got to have birthday parties and go to school and ride my bike around the block all summer. shimelle is doing something awesome to help girls that don't have that - she's donating 100% of class proceeds to the because i am a girl campaign today. her classes are awesome - this is a great way to do something fun for you AND help someone else. she's got all the info here - i hope you'll check it out.
happy tuesday, everyone. i think we're in for a quiet day here - sam's knee is stiff and he's not too happy about being up and moving around. we may be playing a lot of lego batman while he recuperates.
